Synopsis

For his art project Mikuriya Jin carved a statue from the recently chopped local sacred tree. As he is about to bring it to school, the goddess of the tree, Nagi, descends upon the statue, having slept until now, not knowing of her demise. Since the sacred tree can no longer protect the surrounding area from impurities, Nagi has to do it herself now, dragging poor Jin with her.

[::UPDATE::] February, 2015.
Volume 9, chapter 57 translation released.
------------------------
[::UPDATE::] August, 2014.
Currently on Volume 9, Chapter 54.
It seems we are not that close to the ending as we thought. Takenashi is giving us hints that there's still more to come.
It seems, however, that the story is losing its focus... Hopefully this is just transitory.

[::UPDATE::] July,2013.
It's back! And publications are now -supposed to- be bi-monthly.
Ongoing.

It's been bothering me for a while that nobody reviewed this until now.
More than 7 years have passed since it started and no one wrote about it... weird.

Before starting with the review itself just a few considerations:

User Recommendations

Obvious similarities between the two series include: a male protagonist who summons a troublesome goddess; a childhood friend who oftentimes gets jealous; other female characters who begin to develop an attraction to the male protagonist as a result of circumstances involving the deity; and a light-hearted aesthetic typified by comedy and romance.
Romance titles featuring the male protagonist's fun yet troublesome relationship with a deity.
Despite GAN KON featuring action sequences, both series are light-hearted romantic comedies that feature a relationship between a male highschooler and a female deity.
Both involve a supernatural deity helping out others. Hints of romance are present throughout both series.
Both of these titles are light-hearted romantic comedies that revolve around a male protagonist and his encounters with a deity (or deities in Kannagi's case).
Both not only involve goddesses entering the life of the male protagonists, but also feature harem and comedy cliches.
